Speakers & Components
Speakers. The last opportunity to modify your tone. Unlike hi-fi speakers which attempt to create sounds that are true to the musical source fed them, guitar speakers impart their own tone. Your amp/cabinet pretty much determines three things about what speaker to select; speaker size, impedance and power rating. (See our tech corner article on Speaker Impedance, Power Handling and Wiring). But the tone is up to you! Speaker replacement is probably the easiest mod you can perform.

American StandardEach Eminence American Standard model can be identified by its economical Stamped Steel chassis. Although more affordable than cast aluminum, these frames provide an excellent and versatile chassis. Each basket and all metal components are coated with an epoxy-acrylic finish using Eminence's in-house e-coat process. Eminence controls the thickness of that coating to within 0.001â€?; critical when working with close tolerance transducer motor designs, then adding front and rear sealing gaskets on each model to accommodate front or rear loading.
